Johnson, Democratic leader in hoy who studied law literally be- the Senate, is at his home in Texas recovering from a heart attack earlier this year. Until his attack, he was regarded by many as a red-hot presidential, prospect. McClellan said he found the Democrats in Arkansas somewhat cool lo the leading possibilities, including Acllai Stevenson, the 1952 candidate; ov. Harriman of New York, and Sen. Kefauver (D-Tonn).

But state law set 21 as the minimum age limit. So he and his father took their case to the Legislature which responded by enacting a law r—'r- mitting McClellan to be admitted if he were found to be qualified. Thereupon he appeared before a committee of lawyers at Benton for an examination.

A few days before introduced Warren at Hays had a banquet and told a story of a conversation with the late Chief Justice Fred Vinson. Vinson, Hays remarked, once told him "Brooks, I'm always hnppy to see you appear before the court to sponsor an attorney. I always say to myself 'well, there's another $25 for the kitty.'" It costs an attorney a $25 fee to be admitted to practice before the court. "So when I saw Chief Justice Warren smile the other-day," Hays commented, •"! knew he was thinking 'well, there's another $50 for the kitty.'"

Nude Painting Sets Off Fuss BALTIMORE (PPj— The Peale Museum has been caught in the middle of a row between a number of local artists and Mayor Thomas D'Ale- sarjdro. A water-color by Glenn Walker started the trouble. D'Alesandro last week called tlie painting morally objectionable and suggested it be removed from the museum's "Life in Baltimore" show. The painting depicts a nude man and woman lying on a bed. A spokesman ior a group of artists says the mayor's action implies "a clear and immident threat to creative expression." A petition has been signed by a number of those exhibiting in the show, the spokesman said. It states that if the picture isn't restored to public view, the signers will ask that their pictures be taken down too.
